Metal Roof Between Shipping COntainers
Claiborne Hauling LLC, 70'x120' Metal Roof Between Two Shipping Containers

Mr. Claiborne reached out to Curvco Steel Buildings to solve the problem of utilizing his workspace effectively. He knew that the metal roof between two shipping containers had to span at least 70′ wide in order to accomplish this goal.

With all the of the construction equipment and machinery stored outside, he knew it was time to search for a steel building solution. After intensive discussion with one of our building specialists he determined that putting this large structure on shipping containers would not only be cost effective but easier to manage based on his expertise.

After the building was delivered and the contents were erected on-site, he realized adding additional length was rather easy and manageable.

This must explain why Mr. Claiborne came back over and over again as he saw his vision become reality.

He was impressed by the amount of space he could use and the amount of money he saved by not using a traditional concrete pad with a steel building on it.

In order to save some money, Mr. Claiborne decided to pick up his metal roof between two shipping containers at the factory in Pennsylvania personally. He wanted to see where the steel was being manufactured and establish a relationship with our personnel so that in the future he could order more length from someone in the industry he trusted.

He returned to the factory  three separate times to pick-up additional length over the weekend for his roof when he had the time to install it.

With over 8,400 sq feet of interior space, everything in his arsenal would now be able to fit with extra room to spare.

He decided to leave the front side open so that he could move his equipment in and out with no problems and kept the backside solid.

He currently stores his dump trucks, back hoes, bulldozers, bobcats, towing rigs and other equipment necessary for his daily operations.

Bella Tires 51'x20' Container Cover Equipment Storage

Mr. Nicololff contacted us in early May to discuss his storage needs for his tire business. It was important for him to have easy access to his supplies and equipment while maintaining a shaded area to protect his tires from the sun.

Car tires may appear to be weatherproof and withstand rough conditions but they can actually be vulnerable to continuous exposure to the heat of the Florida sun. The website Popular Mechanics cited the sun to be the number one reason for tires to fail and deteriorate.

Storing his un-used tires underneath our Container Covers proved to be the most practical solution to his problem. After speaking to a building specialist, Mr. Nicololff decided to build his Container Cover 51′ Wide to accommodate his stock-pile of tires and house his equipment he uses to support his daily operations.

Mr. Nicololff determined these structures were cost effective due to the fact that the containers themselves were being used as the foundation in comparison to pouring concrete. Curvco supplied him with metal plates which connect to the shipping container for easy installation.

Using only one size nut & bolts, the steel arches connect to the plates with ease.

He also was intrigued by the buildings ability to be disassembled and moved to a different location on his property if need be.

As his business continues to grow he will require more room for coverage.

The best part is he can simply add two more containers and increase the number of steel arches to occupy those dimensions. Adding length to any of our styles is easy to do!

Overall, Mr. Nicololff was impressed by the knowledge our building specialist was able to bestow on him about how versatile our Container Kits are using his 30 years of experience working in the steel building industry.

Curvco’s shipping container roof systems are the best on the market and require little to no upkeep or maintenance which allows the business owner to concentrate on what’s important.
